When I Live My Dream
Label: Universal Special Markets
Bowie's first album was a mixture of mod baroque pop and music hall shenanigans. The songs tend to deal with tea-drinkers, scone-eaters and London art-school high jinks. There's none of the pure spaced-out oddness of his later albums, but songs like "Love You Till Tuesday" are hip-shakingly cool while "Please Mr. Gravedigger" is just very odd.
